You are well with De Grave-Antverpia

De Grave-Antverpia devotes great importance to a relationship of trust with its customers, subcontractors and skippers.

We have clear and simple principles. The result?  We have been working together with the same ships for years. The band with our skippers is solid. Are you looking for a job as a skipper?  With De Grave-Antverpia you will do well.

Your benefits

You will immediately get your money transferred to your account.

The law on the River chartering (5.5.1936) gives the skipper the right to claim payment of his freight, if he hands over his signed bill of lading. In the past a skipper would come to our offices and was paid in cash. That's why we kept a large amount of cash in a safe. That is how we met our obligations.
Today, most skippers do not have enough time to come and hand over their documents at the office. However, the legislation has not changed: If a skipper delivers us a signed bill of lading (personal or by mail) De Grave-Antverpia will arrange his payment immediately. Our motto: 'When it comes to money, De Grave-Antverpia is good for it. '
